Rescue Organisation Ireland, in kind association with Leitrim Fire Service and Leitrim County Council, held a multi-agency Continuous Professional Competency (CPC) Training Day in Carrick on Shannon Fire Station on Saturday 23 June 2018.
The CPC Training Day was a mix of theoretical and practical trauma and road traffic collision training. Uniquely, Rescue Organisation Ireland can offer real road traffic collision and real life trauma scenarios with the aid of our highly qualified moulage team and instructors from Wicklow Fire Services, Meath Fire Service, Dublin Fire Brigade, National Ambulance Services and other agencies.
The Rescue Organisation Ireland CPC Training Programme has been designed to assist, Fire Service personnel, National Ambulance personnel, member of voluntary organisations, EFR's. CFR's, PHECC registered practitioners and other healthcare professionals in obtaining relevant knowledge and training in pre-hospital trauma care and road traffic collisions.
We were delighted to have in Carrick on Shannon participants from the National Ambulance Service, Letirim Fire Service, Laois Fire Service, Order of Malta, Civil Defence and Sligo & Leitrim Mountain Rescue Team amongst others.
For the CPC Training Day in Carrick on Shannon Fire Station we ran three workshops in the morning covering Linking 3 & 4 of Chain of Survival, RTC entrapment injuries and release, and a great session on Firefighter assist with pit crew CPR. After a fabulous lunch, supplied by Tracey Duignan Catering, we ran three detailed scenarios covering road traffic collision extrication's and multi-patient scenarios. Everyone had a chance to share their skills and learn from each other.
The crew of Carrick on Shannon Fire Station were of great help throughout the day and also demonstrated the technique of using low pressure airbags to lift vehicles.
Rescue Organisation Ireland would like to extend our thanks to Leitrim Fire Service and Leitrim County Council for their support and assistance. We will be bringing the CPC Training days to different parts of the country throughout the year in order to allow as many personnel as possible to participate.
